AVF Volunteers

In this last newsletter for the year, I would like to share a few photos and say thank you! Acupuncture for Veterans and Families receives so much help from volunteers, we’d like to thank those of you who give us a hand with events, provide professional web support, business and legal assistance, provide supplies, and most of all, health care and encouragement! Michael & Alice
Most recently, Michael and Alice Bellmont
of Longmont, CO opened their home to
provide a benefit house concert to raise
funding for AVF.

AVF also participated with the Longmont American Legion’s Homeless Veteran Stand Down where services, warm clothing, and food were provided at no cost to veterans.

AVF provided Chinese medicine and acupuncture treatments during Project Sanctuary’s last retreat of the year over the Veterans Day weekend. Project Sanctuary provides retreats for military families in the beautiful Colorado Rockies at the YMCA in Granby.

Jacob, age 10, has been doing cupping for years, and thoroughly enjoys both giving and receiving these techniques that he has learned from his mom, Daisy.
